Rules & Guidelines

  1. Use common sense and be courteous. Also, be social! You’re here to hang out and meet people, so introduce yourself to others. If you see someone struggling, help them out.
  2. We decide the camping spots. We’re trying to keep track of where people are to help people find each other. So don’t move or spread into your neighbor’s area unless you get permission from both them and us.
  3. Small Country’s “3 pets per campsite” is per their sites, not our cells of assignment. You’re responsible for your pets, so keep them under control.
  4. Fire safety is a must. No unattended fires! Fires must be in a fire ring or pit. If there is not a fire ring or pit, find one! No setting random things on fire.
  5. No food? There are stores nearby. It’s OK to barter and share with others, but don’t expect/steal provisions. Do not sell food outright.
  6. Drinking (if you’re of age) is fine. Don’t drink to the point of belligerent or fall-down drunk. If you reach this point, we’ll ask you to go to your tent to sleep it off. Don’t puke on the moon bounce. No alcohol is permitted at or on the lake anymore.
  7. Dispose of your trash. We’re not your parents! We don’t want to ask you to clean up after yourself.
  8. Stay hydrated! Heatstroke will not be noticed until it is too late. CONSTANTLY. DRINK. WATER.
  9. We’re all crammed together pretty tight. Be considerate to others. Don’t beg, steal, if your neighbor asks you to keep it down, try to do so, etc. Don’t harass others at the campground.
  10. If you brought stuff to sell, don’t be pushy or shady about it. If you have more than a small table worth of things to sell, talk to us before you do it so we can assess the situation and help you.
  11. No attempting to drown people or items in the lake.
  12. No vandalizing the campground or anyone else’s belongings.
  13. Wear your wristband at all times while in the MAGStock area.
  14. Read and abide by the Small Country Campground rules.
  15. Also… No defecating in the showers, because, dude, really?


Volunteering for MAGStock is easy! Our events are built on volunteer participation, so we encourage every attendee to get involved. However if it’s your first year at MAGStock we recommend you NOT volunteer so that you’ll have more time to enjoy all the awesomeness without needing to worry about being in a specific place at a particular time.

This page will tell you what you need to do if you’d like to join the MAGStock team

Volunteers are required to purchase admission to the event, the only volunteer compensation is some items from the support swag items. And of course the thanks from your grateful organizers who love it when awesome people pitch in to do great things!

If you have any questions about the above, feel free to contact magstock@magstock.org.

Steps To Volunteer

Step 1: Begin the registration process

We’ll need to begin collecting your information, so go to the pre-registration page where you can begin entering your basic details.

Step 2: Check the “Want to Volunteer?” checkbox

The checkbox appears about half-way down the page. Once you check this, additional options will become available.


Step 3: Select the areas you want to help


MAGStock has just a few departments working together in tight coordination to keep everything running smoothly. Check off whichever department interests you most!

  • Cat Herding - Helps to show people to their assigned campsites, manage vehicle traffic (Including parking areas) and in general gets involved with crowd management issues.
  • Food - Works with the staff in charge of food to prepare, serve and clean up for each meal.
  • Standby/Misc - General catch all to help with whatever the current needs are (If you have attended a MAGFest event before , this is equivalent to the staff support position.)
  • Music - All the things involved with the musical performances at MAGStock - stage hands, lights, cables, sound. (Holding the tent up when it rains).
  • Registration - checking in attendees, showing them where on the map their site is, this also includes selling MAGStock Merch and passing out pre-paid shirts / supporter gear.
  • Slip ‘n Slide - Setting up and running the slip and slide with the planning team.

Step 4: Complete and pay for your registration


Step 5: You’re all confirmed!

That’s all you need to do to register yourself as a volunteer! As the event approaches (usually 2 months beforehand), our Staff Operations department (STOPS) will send you a Volunteer Checklist where you can confirm your attendance, and sign up for shifts in your department.

If you have any questions about the above, feel free to contact magstock@magstock.org.
